The Competition shoot happened right in the middle of my Bow Elk
season. Soooo I was in Elk Camp.

Oh we there will be other shoots.

We had a local 600yd range we shot F-Class on till the owner shut it down.. now theres no range thats close by unless you wanna drive 2-4 hours each way.
So we just shoot on the farm and have fun.

Nonnleslman,

Howdy, Sorry to hear you lost your shooting range.

If I had some idea of where you are located. It would
be helpful in making suggestions.

Here in Central Oregon we are finally getting our 1000
yd range ready for competition. We will be having shoots
once a month until October. NRA and Palma.

Yes. 1-200 BR, 1K BR, Practical. Setting to go F/O but laying prone and breathing at the same time is problematic (is that a real word). I'd like to say being 71 is the problem but it's really not. Open-mouth-fill-to-the-top is the problem. Still shooting and competing is good under any circumstance. we do have a 100 yard 22 match that'll test you. My Ole Lady KA on that (and any BR)
Competition keeps your blade honed.

John

Re: Do You Shoot Rifle Competition?

Shooting is fun. Laying prone and shooting 600, 800, 900 and 1K is like work.
I am just now after two months of curtailing how many times I bend my elbow,
getting to the point I can breath and shoot. A good mat helps, with sewn in
elbow pads. I also wear my old roofing knee pads.

dedication and practice, practice.

600 and 1000 f-class and benchrest for me. What a treat.

I know what you mean. Unfortunately I cannot shoot the prone position any more.
At 81 years of age the body just won't do what the spirit wills.

In order to compete in benchrest I will have to invest in a different rifle. I am not sure that our club has a benchrest shoot. But, I will sure find out.
